Author Comments: 

A consensus poll of the 20 best films of the year according to the critics polled in Film Comment magazine. When the word 'tie' appears that means the one previously in the list is tied with all those tagged as 'tie'. The films listed as 'tie' are in alphabetical order.
Note Film Comment did not actually have an overall list in 1994. I created this from the individual critic's year-end lists.

Notable titles that didn't make it: The Shawshank Redemption, The Lion King
